This relates to a garage that opens onto Rathgar Avenue - which the owners aim to replace with a new building. The first application was in June (172339) and attracted a large number of objections, not least from WRA and the Conservation Panel. Basically this is an overdevelopment.
Planning & Development
Those members with long memories will remember that the Temple Community submitted a planning application to replace their unauthorised marquees with a permanent building.
In April, a planning application was submitted for large and unattractive extensions to this already large house. The application attracted many objections from local residents - and also from WRA.
A replacement for 164001. Essentially, the large first floor terrace has been removed and replaced with a ground floor balcony and the ground floor extension chopped back a fraction to accommodate this. We still consider this to be severe overdevelopment.
Demolition of nine garage units at the rear of Walpole Lodge and the construction of two two bedroom mews bungalows with roof terraces. At first glance looks a decided improvement, but possibly the thin edge of a worrying wedge.
